2021 EV Summit Rescheduled To September 23 to 24


The Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines (EVAP) has announced the rescheduling of the 9th Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit (PEVS) from August 26 to 27 to September 23 to 24, 2021.

The move comes as Metro Manila returns to the strictest quarantine level (enhanced community quarantine or ECQ) from August 6 to 20. The capital region has been placed under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) with “heightened restrictions” in the week prior due to an imminent resurgence of Covid-19 cases, which is suspected to be caused by the new Delta variant.

“EVAP, together with our partners and other stakeholders involved in this much-awaited conference, has decided to make this adjustment in support of the national government’s pandemic response program,” said EVAP President Edmund Araga. “PEVS is all set to stage its second virtual summit this year, but we are one with the rest of the industry in cooperating with efforts to curtail the further spread of this dreaded coronavirus.”

The two-day PEVS, with the theme ‘Accelerating the Switch to Electro-Mobility in the Philippines,’ will be an important platform for policy dialogue and exchange of knowledge, experiences, and best practices aimed at speeding up the country’s timely adoption of electro-mobility in the local transport. This is still in line with the national government’s drive towards a low-carbon economy.

Among the highlights of the 9th PEVS are the symbolic signing of the Memorandum of Understanding by stakeholders to fast-track the switch to EV and its related technologies. Keynote messages will be delivered by the EV champions of the legislative and executive branches of the government. The British Embassy Manila will also support and participate in the event for the first time.

Registration to the 9th PEVS is still ongoing through this website.
